Subject The article considers tariff calculations for suburban railway transportation. Objectives The objective of the study is to create a model of flexible tariff regulation. The model should be sensitive to the interests of market actors, social and economic situation in the region, and market competition, which allows harmonizing the interests of all actors of the suburban railway transportation market. Methods The study rests on economic and sociological techniques. Results I simulated the dependence of the passenger traffic on tariffs and the volume of transportation. This enables to effectively develop tariffs for suburban public transportation. The article presents a model of the commutation service market, a unique model for tariff setting, and a new approach to tariff calculations for commutation services. Conclusions The findings show that at present the focus is on the standard pricing methodology. In addition, the modern methods of tariff setting consider only two sides of the passenger traffic process, i.e. operators and passengers, and disregard the interests of public authorities. The existing methods of tariff formation do not consider transportation demand and supply and take them as a constant value. I offer a system approach to tariff regulation, which takes into account the interests of all participants of the suburban passenger market. It is expedient to consider the results of two models, i.e. optimal and sociological. This approach will lead to a more rational tariff regulation.
